Elevate Your Style: The Timeless Appeal of Leather Jackets

Whether you're channeling a classic, polished look or embracing your inner rebel, the leather jacket effortlessly adapts to any style persona. Originally designed for practicality and protection while riding motorcycles, the moto jacket has since evolved into a symbol of effortless style, well worth taking a permanent spot in your closet.

At Matti D, we value versatility, wearability, and, above all, helping you find the best clothes for your personal style. After all, you wear the clothes; they don't wear you - as we like to say. In this blog post, we hone in on leather moto jackets, exploring styles from our in-store brands, Deadwood Studios and Susan Bender.

Exploring Style Variations: From Moto to Modern Chic

Deadwood Studios: Sustainable Edge

Edgy and eco-conscious - meet the Dormi Jacket from Deadwood Studios. A newer brand at Matti D, their take on the classic leather jacket draws inspiration from a more androgynous, structured aesthetic. Made of upcycled cowskin and lined with recycled plastic bottles, the Dormi features chunky silver metal hardware, an asymmetrical zipper, chunky belt, and a genuine coin pocket. The placement of the belt creates a slightly cropped fit, giving you the option to wear it loose and open or closer to the body.

One of the best things about leather jackets like this is their versatility. Craft a look that strikes the perfect balance of masculine and feminine by layering the Dormi over a luxurious silk slip dress for a striking contrast. Alternatively, stay true to your roots by adding one to your favorite graphic tee and jeans combo for an effortlessly cool look.

Susan Bender: Tailored Sophistication

If you’re in search of a more refined take on the leather jacket, look no further than Susan Bender. As one of our top leather brands at Matti D, Susan Bender crafts luscious, butter-soft pants, jackets, dresses, and skirts in the highest-quality materials. Timeless styling and impeccable tailoring make them a sell-out every time.

This fitted leather jacket is made with the feminine silhouette in mind. Its elegant details and careful styling are incredibly flattering to every figure. Designed to accentuate and elongate the body, this garment features a strategically placed belt meant to cinch in the waist and draw the eye inward.

Its asymmetrical zipper and side zipper pockets exude timeless appeal, with metal detailing that is sleek and minimal. Made of thin leather and featuring a fitted bodice, this garment is the perfect tailored alternative to the boxier style of Deadwood’s jacket and other traditional moto styles.

As with the Dormi, experiment with styling and layering Susan Bender’s iteration. Pair it with silky tanks or a lacy long-sleeve for a flirty moment. Try a straight-leg jean and heeled boot for an elevated yet casual look.

Whether you’re drawn to edgier styles or more elegant outfits, moto jackets are worth the investment. A staple akin to the classic little black dress or the perfect fitting jean, leather jackets never go out of style. Embrace their timeless appeal and make a statement wherever you go, whatever your personal style.
